Faye Posted December 19, 2022 Share Posted December 19, 2022 (edited) These knives are forged from a billet of 480 layer random damascus. The one has spalted beachwood on the handle and the other has dyed maple burl, while both have stainless steel fittings. I made these for a dream order. The customer gave me full artistic license to do whatever I wanted so long as they were larger damascus kitchen knives. I took the opprotunity to try a few new things, and for the most part I'm very pleased with these blades. The splated beach was not my first wood choice for the one knife, but I ground through to the tang on the beautiful piece of masur birch I first selected (because when you save a piece of wood for a few years to use on the perfect knife what else would happen!). The maple burl is dyed blue, but after some oil it turned nearly black, which was kind of disappointing. However, the pattern in the damascus more than makes up for the sad handles. Blade specs are: Splated beach 5 7/8" blade 4 1/4" handle 2" heel 0.113 spine 0.008 behind the edge Maple Burl 6" blade 4 1/2" handle 1 7/8" heel 0.113 spine 0.007 behind the edge Edited December 19, 2022 by Faye 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
